January 4, 2014: I have a whole bunch of red and green squares and want to use them up for some kind of Christmas quilt, but the color scheme is not speaking to me. Sigh.

November 1, 2017: The squares are still clogging up my measured scraps and need to get used. In desperation, I give the stack to a friend of mine with a gift for layouts and tell her to give it a try. I throw in every green or red square I have just so she has something to work with.

November 4, 2017: My friend texts me a layout and I LOVE it. I go get the squares.

November 5, 2017: I start assembling. I’m hoping to finish it time to list in my Etsy Shop.

November 7, 2017: We pin the quilt at her house with the resident quilt inspector. I’m kind of in love with this quilt now and will probably keep it.

December 20, 2017: Hooray! The Retro Christmas Scattered Squares Quilt is done and now officially belongs to my husband.
